2024 Congress Poster Submissions

Opens 15 February 2024!

How to Submit

You do not have to be a member of Flux to submit a poster, but if accepted, you will be required to become a member. You may opt to submit a Poster only, or a Poster and a 5-minutes Flash Talk. Flash Talk presenters will also present their posters at the Flux Congress. All abstracts will be blind reviewed by the Program Committee.

Poster Abstract Submission Deadlines

Abstract submission open - February 15th, 2024

Abstract submission close - May 15th, 2024

IMPORTANT: Confirmations of accepted abstracts will be issued mid-June.

Poster Types

Standard submission: A standard abstract for data analysis that has already been completed for the study. The abstract should state the study’s objective, briefly describe the methods used, summarize the results obtained, and state the conclusions. Abstracts should emphasize the significance of results and general principals rather than describe common methods and procedures.

Pre-registration: Abstract for study that you plan to conduct (or have collected already, but not analyzed), and pre-register your hypothesis & data analysis plans. The data analysis should be completed before the Congress to include the results and conclusion in the presentation.

Data analysis plan: This abstract is similar to the pre-registration, but you are not required to have completed data collection or analysis before the Congress.

New this year: Flux will be limiting the number of pre-registered posters & data analysis plan posters to be 25% of the total number of posters presented. Additionally, Flux is requiring that pre-registered posters and data analysis plan posters are accompanied by a publicly available pre-registration posted to a site (e.g., OSF, AsPredicted) developed for the purpose of documenting pre-registrations. For data analysis plan posters, a published or preprint protocol is applicable for submission.
